    Oh, Bieber!

    Justin Bieber has been in some legal trouble lately. On Thursday, the 19-year-old Stratford, Ont. native was arrested on suspicion of a DUI while drag racing a yellow Lambourghini in Miami. Just last week cops raided his home after her was accused of throwing eggs at his neighbour’s house.

    But Biebs hasn’t always been so…dramatic.

    Before he became a major pop star, he was just a cute kid with a killer voice who posted videos on YouTube (that’s how he was discovered by Usher, after all). Check out the video below from 2008 of a pint-sized Bieber singing “Cry Me a River” by Justin Timberlake.

    His YouTube account also includes numerous other clips of a young Bieber belting it out.

    Despite the Canadian's recent antics, his early YouTube videos reminded us that underneath it all, he’s an incredibly talented guy with a phenomenal voice. That’s why we really hope he gets it together soon.

    Do you think Justin Bieber can redeem himself?

    It's not exactly a shock that the star's talent manager, Scooter Braun, is offering words of support following the Miami Beach debacle, during which the 19-year-old allegedly told cops he had been drinking, smoking pot, and taking prescription pills prior to being pulled over for drag racing.

    Braun, whose biggest client is Bieber, then added this:

    Even Lady Gaga asked her Monsters to be kind to the star.

    The whole world knows by now that Justin Bieber spent the first part of Thursday behind bars.

    The 19-year-old was arrested in Miami after he was pulled over at 4:09 a.m. ET for drag racing a rented yellow Lamborghini in a residential area, according to Miami police. (His friend, R&B singer Khalil, was arrested as well.) Bieber was charged with a DUI, resisting arrest without violence,  and driving with an expired driver's license.

    But what else has he been up to in Florida? Let’s break it down.

    Monday night: Biebs, who spent the weekend snowboarding with friends in Colorado, was photographed at Miami’s trendy club Mansion. The under-21 superstar met with fans outside the venue and partied there until about 3:30 a.m. While most people might call it a night at that hour, Bieber did the opposite. He went to hang out at his pal Lil Scrappy’s 30th birthday party at the King of Diamonds strip club, where TMZ reported

  • Burning Question: How Justin Bieber’s Bust Could Get Him Deported

    Q: Could Justin Bieber's latest bust get him deported?

    First felony egg-tossing allegations, now Justin Bieber has been busted for a drug-fueled DUI. Is he getting dangerously close to deportation?

    As we told you last week, deportation is definitely an option should things break bad against the Biebs.

    For now, he hasn't been charged with anything related to the egg case, which is the more serious allegation and remains under investigation.

    As for today's ill-fated Lambo run in Miami Beach, Justin is still only looking at a misdemeanor DUI count. But that could change, according to immigration attorney Jose Hernandez.

    "The Miami police chief told reporters that Bieber made statements indicating that he had been smoking marijuana," which is, of course, a controlled substance, says Hernandez. "That could make him deportable.

    "Oftentimes people are deported for just being under influence of controlled substances," Hernandez emphasizes.

    It also doesn't matter what kind of visa Bieber has,

  • Justin Bieber: A Timeline of Trouble Leading Up to His Arrest

    Justin Bieber (Getty Images)Justin Bieber's arrest early Thursday doesn't exactly come as a surprise to those who have been keeping up with the superstar as of late (or to those people who used to live next door to the Biebs).

    Trouble has been brewing for the "Boyfriend" singer for about a year, really ever since he and Selena Gomez first broke up. From wild house parties, to club scuffles, drama has plagued the 19-year-old for months.

    It all came to a head when Bieber was arrested for a DUI on Jan. 23 (he was also charged with resisting arrest without violence and driving with an expired driver's license).

    Take a look at a timeline of Justin's troubles leading up to the arrest:

    February 2013: Pictures are supposedly being shopped around of Justin, Lil Za, and Lil Twist surrounded by what allegedly appears to be sizzurp and blunts.

    March 2013: The month gets off to a bad start on the 1st when Justin celebrates his "worst birthday" ever. While ringing in the big 1-9, the singer and his entourage apparently get

  • Why Was Justin Bieber Wearing a Red Jumpsuit in Jail?

    Justin Bieber's mug shot (Miami Beach Police Dept.)

    By now we've seen dozens of celebrity mug shots. Seriously … when you hear the name Lindsay Lohan, doesn't one of the handful of images of her in an orange jumpsuit pop into your head?

    So why, then, was Justin Bieber was decked out in red at his court appearance on Thursday afternoon at Miami-Dade Circuit Court?

    Different jails have different colors to classify inmates, but in Bieber's case, it's pretty simple.

    Janelle Hall, community affairs unit manager at Miami-Dade County jail, confirms to Yahoo that Justin's red jumpsuit signifies that he is a "high-profile inmate."

    Sometimes that can mean the inmate will be held in isolation. Given Bieber's status and notoriety, it's likely that was the case for the "Bad Day" singer.

    There has been no shortage of public shaming today for Justin. Not only did the Miami Beach PD tweet out up-to-date information on the social media site (even blasting out the pop star's mug shot for the world to see), but there was a live video stream of his bond

  • Justin Bieber and Chantel Jeffries leaving a nightclub together on Wednesday night. (PacificCoastNews)Justin Bieber wasn't alone when he was arrested early Thursday morning on DUI charges. There was a female passenger along for the ride, but who was she?

    While Miami Beach Police haven't identified the woman who witnessed the Canadian singer drop F-bombs at police while being pulled over for drag racing with singer Khalil, all signs indicate the passenger was Chantel Jeffries.

    Bieber's mug shot (Miami Beach Police Dept.)The model was photographed in the passenger seat of Bieber's rented yellow Lamborghini late Wednesday night when they drove away from SET nightclub. She was part of his entourage inside the hot spot, where he partied at a table in the back, according to E! News. And earlier on Wednesday, the "Boyfriend" singer himself, who recently started spending time with ex Selena Gomez again, posted a photo of her on Instagram. The pretty brunette, who's a Wilhelmina model in Miami, was pictured at the wheel of the sports car. He captioned the shot, "@chanteljeffries taking me for a ride in the lambo."

  • It's been 10 years since Regina George ruled "Mean Girls" but she can still make her fan girls squirm.

    At the Sundance Film Fest this past weekend, an eager Hollywire reporter asked Canadian actress Rachel McAdams, who played head mean girl Regina in the 2004 film, her favourite line from the comedy classic.

    Paramount Pictures / Via isthiswhyimstillsingle.wordpress.comThe cringe worthy moment was caught on video, which was uploaded on Monday. After taking a moment to wrack her brain, the 35-year-old Toronto native is seen settling on not one, but two quotes. "I liked the Toaster Strudel part, I thought that was pretty funny," she said, referring to a line spoken about Gretchen Wieners (Lacey Chabert) -- "She's totally rich because her dad invented Toaster Streudels" -- "And, 'Is butter a carb?'"

    Paramount Pictures / Via wifflegif.comMcAdams attended the premiere of her new film, "A Most Wanted Man," on Sunday in Park City, Utah. She was joined by director Anton Corbijn as well as co-stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Willem Dafoe, who also posed with her for a portrait session earlier

  • Justin Bieber is busted. The 19-year-old pop star was arrested on suspicion of a DUI and drag racing on Thursday morning in Miami, a police spokesperson confirmed to CNN.

    The Biebs was reportedly drag racing a yellow Lamborghini against a Ferrari in a residential area they had blocked off. He was booked on a DUI charge after showing "signs of impairment" and failing a sobriety test. TMZ reported he resisted arrest and may have also been on drugs.

    The Ferrari driver, who was also arrested on a DUI charge, was identified as singer Khalil on the Miami Beach Police Twitter account. Khalil, who was described as "an associate of Bieber," is a 19-year-old R&B singer who in June 2013 premiered the video for his single "Stars." A year before that he collaborated on a mix tape with Lil Twist (Bieb's ex-BFF) called "3 Weeks in Miami."
